Too Stupid to Be a Hypocrite?

Too Stupid to Be a Hypocrite?

Shea is stupid. Of this there’s no doubt.
Stupid things he’s determined to shout—
Or to tweet. Never ends!
When the Judgment impends,
Will the plea, “I’m a fool,” help him out?

–Tom Riley

Note on the Text

I’m not on Facebook or Twitter anymore, so I don’t see the little verbal twitches that constitute Mark Shea’s reason for existence. But readers of this blog send me screen shots when they’re particularly incensed by his attacks on reason and common human decency. Two recent ones made me briefly consider that Shea might be a hypocrite, destined for the Eighth Circle of Hell according to Dante. But then I reconsidered. Maybe Shea doesn’t have the brains to be hypocritical.


The last shall be first and the first shall be last – so here’s the second tweet sent to me by a real Catholic:

Shea here is attacking Canada’s trucker convoy – at the very moment when Justin Trudeau was unleashing a totalitarian putsch against brave Canadian citizens trying to stand up to ridiculous mask and vaccine mandates. These mandates give Shea more of a thrill than his hypothetical rectal vibrator. I’ll delve into the details a little later. The main point is that comparing Trudeau’s totalitarian actions to Nazi totalitarian actions is not okay according to Shea.


Here’s the first tweet – posted a little over two weeks before:

The point here is that the GOP may take advantage of Brainless Joe Biden’s dementia displays to win the midterm elections – and they shouldn’t… because they’re Nazis!


The hypocrisy is pretty clear, right? In the mind of Shea, it’s plain crazy to compare Trudeau’s totalitarianism to Nazi totalitarianism, and it disqualifies you from being taken seriously the way Fat Boy needs to be taken seriously. Don’t be silly, you Canadian truckers! But it’s A-okay to compare the GOP in this country to Nazis, or even to say that they are Nazis. Indeed, in other venues, Shea has called the Canadian truckers themselves Nazis. There are very few ideological opponents that he hasn’t called Nazis.
Hypocritical rhetoric, yes?


The thing is, though, I’m beginning to doubt that Fat Boy can even see the self-contradiction. The two propositions – “It’s wrong to call your ideological opponents Nazis” and “Shea’s ideological opponents are Nazis” – loiter arm and arm in his skull, and he sees no conflict at all.


He may actually be that stupid.


I do need to note here that I don’t think Trudeau is a Nazi. He’s more of a Commie. But really he’s just a leftist globalist intent on a new brand of pansy tyranny.


Shea, of course, doesn’t really know anything about Nazi Germany – or about history in general. He once maintained that the only evidence for Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul was Caesar’s own self-promoting book. But Shea does like to pretend.


Note the reference to self-pity – a recent obsession of Shea’s, and an obvious function of projection. Shea once whined that he was “trying to say yes to God” and “widely hated” on that account. Boo-hoo.


Note furthermore the reference to spreading COVID. Fat Boy apparently still thinks that the COVID vaccines prevent transmission, though it’s been admitted since July of last year that they don’t. I myself caught COVID on Christmas Eve from a relative who had been fully vaccinated and boosted. Almost everyone else in the room caught it, too. I won’t cry about it, Shea fashion, because it wasn’t at all a big deal. I worked out for at least a half-hour every day that I had the disease. And I remain unvaccinated. Pope Francis, go collect your thirty pieces of silver from Chairman Xi.


Fat Boy might fear a different experience with COVID. Though we’re both the same age, he is… well… grossly obese. That makes him especially vulnerable.


And you all have to get the vaccine that doesn’t work or he’ll hold his breath and turn blue!

Sufficient Study

Sufficient Study

Does Mark Shea know a lot about stuff?
Focused study, he’ll tell you, is rough.
With such effort, he’s frugal.
Why not just search on Google?
Morons pay him – which should be enough.

Dr. Jill Makes Her Choice

Dr. Jill Makes Her Choice

Amongst ladies she sought to be first
Though her man with dementia was cursed
Atop native stupidity.
And such reckless cupidity
Has effects that will not be reversed.

You object to the story in vain.

Biden had to resort to a chain!

Though to peace all aspire,

Circumstances were dire.

Plus, Joe never had much of a brain.

Of stupidity now he repents—

Or he claims to.  My doubt is immense.

His skull holds the same brain.

Stupid he will remain.

Lying will not provide greater sense.

Maxine Waters? Abysmal IQ
Makes her urge other morons to do
What will not help their cause.
I respond with guffaws.
The wave brought about thus won’t be blue.

Some drooling YouTube sycophant declares
That Shea has reached the literary height
Of Flannery O’Connor. Splitting hairs,
Perhaps, I note a difference: she could write.

Peccatum Percipere

Peccatum Percipere

 

“You shouldn’t notice that the Pope’s a fool!”
“I wouldn’t — but he constantly insists
I must.” “Perception’s sinful, as a rule:
You shouldn’t notice that the Pope’s a fool.
Telling the truth is terribly uncool!
You ought to wrap it up in verbal mists!
You shouldn’t notice that the Pope’s a fool!”
“I wouldn’t — but he constantly insists.”

Sucker

Sucker

 

How does Shea suck? It’s time to count the ways—
Or try.  The number may soar out of view.
He sucks because he never has a clue.
He sucks because he turns a lousy phrase
And thinks it’s really neat. He sucks for days
Then has his stomach pumped and sucks anew.
He sucks because the Zeitgeist sticks like glue
To his red beard throughout the tricks he plays.
And, most of all, he sucks for sinking low
In the pursuit of fraud, condemning “hate”
While he himself hates widely. Oh, his show
Convinces some! Perhaps they’ll share his fate.
Shea sucks — and, if what Dante wrote is so,
Shea will be sucking down in Circle Eight.

(This poem is of course a parody of Mrs. Browning’s famous Sonnet 43, which I abominate for its false rhymes, Victorian pieties, and ladylike prissiness. However, Mrs. Browning on her worst day, with a double concussion and having downed a fifth of Scotch, would still be a better writer than Shea on his best day, unpunched and sober.  The greatest injustice is that Shea remains unpunched.)

Not Again!

Not Again!

 

Oh, no! More klutzy sonnets from Mark Shea,
Full of false rhymes, with unrhymed lines thrown in
Whenever Shea, who’s really dumb as sin,
Can’t think from A to B and back to A!
Though proved incompetent, he types away.
When fourteen lines are done, he gives a grin
And tells himself he’s truly scored a win.
Ignorant fans applaud this slack display.
The Muses, though, are sickened by the smell
That rises from Shea’s verse, ineptly planned
And executed. Let him rot in Hell!
That’s what the Goddesses of Taste demand.
Shea doesn’t mind. In his world, all is well.
The Catholic jack-off jerk has tried his hand.
